Introducing '19 WCS Speaker James Raffan from Seeley's Bay, ON.

James needs no introduction to this crowd, and we have deep respect for his love of canoe and canoeing. Longtime friend of the Canadian Canoe Museum, James just received Canada’s Meritorious Service Medal from Governor General Julie Payette for his work on reconnecting CCM collection back to its roots in partnership with Indigenous community. On this journey, James is exploring the ways in which the Museum might reinvent itself  and how the canoe might have relevance as a vessel of reconcilliation in a shifting cultural landscape.

With his usual, somewhat off-the-wall style and flair, moved by cultural commentators who have referenced his work as Exhibit A in perpetuating settler notions of “white canoe wilderness,” JR invites symposium attendees into the energized and often uncomfortable ethos of organizational and programmatic innovation that is emerging at the Canadian Canoe Museum and beyond.

Where's Jimbo? All over the globe, actually. Doing what he's most passionate about - storytelling! We welcome JR to the '19 WCSymposium and look forward to hearing it from one of the best!
Have an extra bed or bedroom?
Continuing this great tradition that George Luste started many years ago, I call on my local friends who have ways and means to welcome an out-of-town speaker to their humble abode. Ah, friendships that were forged  this way! Call or email Aleks asap - and thank you!
